CM Punk bowls for charity
CHICAGO -- World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk put his bowling skills to the test last week when he joined the fifth annual Kerry Wood's Strike Zone Celebrity Bowling Tournament.
This year, the Chicago Cubs player's bowling tournament benefited the Organic School Project. The organization's mission states that it "seeks to transform Chicago-area children into healthier, more mindful eaters, one school, and one child at a time."
"I think it's a great cause. It's important to teach kids early, so they can start making good food choices and counting calories at an early age," Punk told WWE.com.
At the event, the Straightedge Superstar found himself with a team full of female fans.
"It was an awesome experience. Everyone who was bowling got drafted. I was drafted by Cubs' baseball player's wives. I was on team Estrogen," he said. "We dominated early, but then we fell apart in the fifth frame. It was really fun."
In between games, the World Heavyweight Champion hobnobbed with many local and sports celebrities.
"I talked to Kerry about if Mark Cuban will buy the Cubs. In fact Mark Cuban was there. He knew who I was and he greeted me and introduced me to his daughter Alexis, who knew who I was."
